I live on my phone – literally, it forms not only a major part of my job and my industry, but also how I communicate with literally everyone. I am loving my Samsung S9 right now, and for the first time in my life
Pre-internet and e-mails, the quickest way to communicate with someone was a telephone call and information about the world was found in libraries or newspapers. Now of course, there are more ways to get a message to someone than most people can make use of.
From SMS and WhatsApp to Facetime, Skype or any number of social media platforms, people are instantly and constantly connected. As for information, a whole world awaits at the click of a button.
Every person is unique and the way they use their smartphone within their personal context differs. However, there’s no doubt that when it comes to navigating the modern world, technology has become the interaction touch-point, whether for finding directions, managing wellness, doing business, seeking entertainment, socialising and so much more.
The camera on the S9 has to be my favourite part of the phone, for my line of work the quality of my images need to be top class for sharing on websites and social media. The ‘My Emoji” is also too cute for words, she looks like me, and so many people have responded to her with interest, and of course, requests for me to make ones for them, too.
“To have the world at your fingertips, from friends and emotional support to business tools, entertainment, navigation and the ability to shop, is immensely powerful. The way people are touched by technology in today’s world has created a new way of doing life, a fresh way of being in touch and has opened opportunities that simply weren’t possible a decade ago. Samsung’s new flagship devices, the S9 and S9+ have taken the concept that much further and we have no doubt they will contribute greatly to more interconnectivity in the world,” says Craige Fleischer, Vice President of Integrated Mobility, Samsung South Africa.
